In a story from WWE.com's Where Are They Now section, i just saw the man that was deemed too small for the business (who now works for WWE in production) has really let himself go!

A man who once looked like this:http://www.wwe.com/f/article/image/2011/09/kidman_article.jpg
now looks like this:

He may I have received a haircut....... OH and gotten 10 years older. That's age it happens to everyone. You won't look like yourself in 10-15 years.

could be the roids he took to make himself look jacked in the latter part of his WWE career. The guys who I knew who were juicing were hard when they were working out, but became fat slobs after a few years when they stopped working out.

Wow that is a name I haven't heard in a long time. I used to be a big Billy Kidman mark!

Well when you finish wrestling, you do tend to 'let yourself go' a bit.
Take HHH as another example. If you noticed at NOC, he isn't as ripped as he used to be.

Kidman was a great wrestler though. He was one of my favorites back in the day in WCW.

TheKevinBrand...have you seen him in the latter part of his WWE career? he was jacked for his size and body frame. His muscle mass did not suit his body.

I actually thought HHH looked bigger than he was at Mania. Guess that was just me..

If WCW never folded he would've been a main eventer there. Honestly if he went to TNA he probably would've been AJ Styles.

Wasn't he at one point dating Tori Wilson?

His abs aren't as ripped any more, and I'd say his arms are smaller. Traps and lats have diminished slightly too. Not saying it's a drastic change, but you can tell he's not working out as much as he used to.

What's the issue here? Is it that offensive to you that a guy has aged, maybe put on few pounds, in a new and completely different role, maybe doesn't work out/juice up (conjecture) as much as he used to as it isn't required, and has probably had too much and gotten tired of, throughout his life; that you made this thread about it?

How can you even tell that much from this photo?

I struggle to believe you're the vision of a Greek sculpted statue of a God.

So he had a win over Hulk Hogan too. That's pretty badass! Not many can say that!

Ehhh the man is knocking on 40, has a steady job outside of taking bumps daily, is married to a SMOKING hot wife. So what if he put on a few pounds. Life is good to him at the moment. Best of luck to the "7 year itch" (anyone else remember that gimmick?)

From wiki:

After being together for four years, Wilson married Peter Gruner (known on-screen as Billy Kidman) on July 11, 2003. They lived together in Tampa, Florida, when not traveling. The couple were officially divorced in 2008.

In September 2007, Wilson opened her official clothing line "Officially Jaded", alongside Nick Mitchell, a former WWE wrestler who was known as "Mitch" of the Spirit Squad. The couple began dating in mid-2006. She opened a store in The Woodlands, Texas, at the upscale Market Street district. On September 14, 2008, Torrie made an appearance at the inaugural Wrestler's Rescue event held in Piscataway, New Jersey, an event to create awareness and to help raise money to support the health care needs of retired professional wrestlers.

the point of this thread was to get the Billy Kidman name out there again, we haven't heard that name in 6 years! And I'm just saying that it's too bad that when you retire from wrestling that you let yourself go
